Located on Hunda Island, Tubu Tree Camp is built in traditional style, with elevated wooden walkways connecting the tents on raised platforms – each with picturesque lookouts of the surrounding floodplains from a private deck. 

Tubu Tree

Camp

 

Situated in the very heart of the wetlands of the Okavango Delta, the 60 000-hectare (150 000-acre) Jao Concession embodies all the magic and mystique of Botswana with vegetation that varies from permanent swamps to dry land. On its western side, the area is dryer than the east, and Hunda Island, which is the tip of a large 'sand tongue,' is the largest area of dry land in the Jao Concession during the inundation (July-September). Hunda Island has sandveld vegetation providing excellent browsing for herds such as large concentrations of wildebeest and zebra with others such as giraffe and elephant seen too. Birding in the Jao Concession is exceptional, with the western drier areas hosting crimson-breasted shrike, Dickinson’s kestrel and Meyer’s parrot. Other exciting species in Jao include swamp nightjar and brown firefinch.
